The Best Vegan Non-Dairy Ice Cream

Walk down the aisle of a health food store and you'll find an incredible selection of non-dairy ice creams. There's gelato, sorbet, dairy-free ice cream sandwiches, even fudge popsicles, low-carb, rice-based and soy-based ice creams! But which one is best?

My pick for the best dairy-free vegan ice cream is Soy Delicious Purely Decadent. This vegan ice cream is organic, free of refined sugars, lower in fat than traditional ice cream, and comes in avariety of flavors from the popular Chocolate Peanut Butter Zig Zag to the classic flavors of Mint Chip and Rocky Road.

I'm also a huge fan of the Chicago Soy Dairy's Temptation brand vegan ice cream, which is much richer and creamier than any other soy ice cream I've ever tried. And I've tried a lot! The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor is simply to die for. Unfortunately, Temptaion vegan ice cream isn't yet available nationwide, though if you're luck enough to live in one of these states you're missing out if you haven't already tried it. I promise!
